The Crimson Axe is immune to the Poisoned, On Fire!, Venom, Shadowflame, Confused, and Cursed Inferno debuffs.


  • Crimson Axes cannot spawn if the player is standing in front of housing Walls.
  • Like most other Crimson enemies, Crimson Axes can only spawn on Crimson grass, Crimstone, Crimsand, and Red Ice Blocks.
  • Due to a glitch, the Crimson Axe does not inflict the Cursed debuff. However, it is still able to drop the Nazar.


  • It shares the same sprite as the Blood Lust Cluster. Unlike the tool, the Crimson Axe sports a distinct red glow along its outline.
